The University has a Large Grant Contributions Fund which provides financial contributions to large, collaborative grant applications. To be eligible for funding, the following criteria apply 

  • Research grant applications for funding normally over £5M for STEM disciplines and over £2M for applications in Arts, Humanities and Social sciences subject areas can request financial contributions from this Fund.  
  • All applications have to include one or more external partners.  
  • Only applications led by Cambridge PIs are eligible.  

Funding requests for activities that add value in areas such as widening participation and inclusion, improving partnerships, capability and capacity building, and similar are particularly encouraged and will be given priority. Applications which are being developed early in expectation of an upcoming funder call, can also request funding from this call.  

Funding may be requested for activities that are complementary to the external funding and in addition to the financial and in-kind contributions to the bid from Departments / Schools / Non-school institutions. You can apply for a Financial contribution of up to 10% of the award. Further details including how to apply are available on the Large Grant Contributions Fund webpage
